BooHoo Gingham Floral Shorts Review

BooHoo Gingham Floral Shorts Review and Try On

Check out how awesome these floral shorts look on! They look even better in person too, the camera doesn’t do them justice in my honest opinion.

I wanted something current and new for the summer, beach days being one thing I regularly undertake. Here I am at a beach, wearing said shorts, with my accompanying choice of white tee with Dragonflies on, staying within a nature theme (tee from Primark). Sadly it wasn’t quite warm enough to wear them with bare legs, and I feel the black leggings make them stand out anyway against the sand.


My Overall Review Scores for these Shorts are;

Value for Money 5/5
Fit To Size 5/5
Comfort 5/5
Detailing 5/5
Durability 5/5
Appearance 5/5


At just £10.00 these shorts are a real bargain this summer. Whether you are going on holiday or you just want some new beach wear for SS17. I recommend these beautiful shorts for several reasons. The first is that the price is excellent for the quality of the fabric, they are in no way see through, and are thick and soft to touch. They sit at the waist and are great for small girls like me, because they make your legs look longer!

I’m so pleased that I purchased these gorgeous summer shorts. They fitted to size and the material is great, comfortable and washes and wears well. The details are also excellent, the gingham is so on trend right now which I love, and to combine that style with summer florals is just a winner in my eyes. Both for my wardrobe and for my style.

Here is the link to the shorts on the BooHoo website for those who want to take a closer look.

Thank you for reading this review today, I hope you will visit Severn Wishes blog again soon for another Fashion post. Until then, happy shopping!

A special thank you to my partner in crime, my best friend, Megan, for taking the photographs of me at the beach.

BooHoo MCR Charity Tee – The Bee Tee

BooHoo MCR Charity Tee – Bee Tee

As many of you will know, the United Kingdom has been through some very difficult times of recent, with terror attacks rocking our country. Like many other people I was lucky to not be directly affected, but still mourning the loss of my fellow Britain’s. And as a whole country, we looked at ways in which we could help those still in need.

I regularly donate to charities, and I wanted to do my bit this time but was unsure how. But then I saw that BooHoo were going to do a range of t-shirts. They wanted to raise funds for the victims of the terror attack that occurred in Manchester at the Ariana Grande concert.

As soon as my size was available I ordered, knowing that BooHoo were donating 100% of the profits from each of the items sold direct to the MCR emergency fund. This pleased me because I knew the money would go directly to its cause.

I chose the Bee Tee one. My reasons behind that were for two things in particular and I do love going to Manchester. It was a city I visited regularly growing up and my husband and I had our first date there as well, so it holds a special place in my heart. The other reason is because long before I was a blogger, I classed myself as a nature photographer. I adore nature and making images of it, and Bee’s are something I macro a lot during the warmer months.


When the top arrived I was pleasantly surprised by its quality, this wasn’t just something that was mass produced in order to make the money quickly. BooHoo has chosen good quality fabric and the print was straight and correctly applied. This is the whole reason that I am reviewing this item, not only are you helping a great cause by purchasing, but you’re also getting a wonderful item to wear yourself.

It was a brilliant white colour and the Manchester Bee really stands out. This t-shirt is made from 100% Cotton, which is why it’s so nice to wear. The fit was good, I chose a Small, and was happy I did. As you will see in my images below, it fitted well to my size in both shoulders and length.

(Excuse my no makeup look – fresh home from work and I just had to try it on! Which is why it was creased too ha ha!)

My Overall Review Scores

Value for Money 5/5
Fit To Size 5/5
Comfort 5/5
Detailing 5/5
Durability 5/5
Appearance 5/5

I have washed and worn the tee, and although it does crease easily a cool iron is all that is needed to bring this tee back to looking great. It is extremely comfortable and also has a good length as well. It looks perfect with coloured jeans.


I’m so pleased that I not only decided to buy this top but also to help BooHoo raise some money for MCR. What better way to help victims of something so awful, but still end up with an item to remind you of how strong we can be when we support each other and stand together.

So thank you BooHoo, for this opportunity to help, I will treasure my Bee Tee.

Thank you for reading this review today, below you will find the links to the BooHoo website and the tops still available if you wish to help the charity yourself.

BooHoo Cat Face Bodycon Dress

Today’s blog post is a short review of a dress that I purchased for Halloween this year. A fabulous bodycon dress at a great price from BooHoo.

This black bodycon dress has a printed white cat face on the front. It is made out of 95% cotton and 5% elastane. The item is very soft and comfortable to wear, I would even consider wearing this regularly, I don’t feel that it’s just for Halloween because it isn’t scary and doesn’t depict anything specific enough for Halloween.

Anyone who follows me on social media know that I am a cat mummy and a huge fan of all cats in general, so this is an ideal choice for me to add to my wardrobe. I think I would be brave enough to wear it without a specific reason to do so.

boohoo-cat-full-res-sw The dress is flattering because of the bodycon style, and I have always liked to wear this sort of dress. I stand at just over the top end of petite, and this trend looks great on someone of my height when paired with some heels, I always feel taller in slimmer fitting dresses.

boohoo-cat-res-swThe cat face is very cool, the unusual shapes that make it up seem three dimensional as you wear the outfit.

Here is another photograph of me wearing the dress, it ends half way down my thighs. The sleeve length was also perfect for me, I like sleeves to end at the edge of my wrist. The neckline is flattering due to the shape and I appreciated that the dress wasn’t too low cut either.

boohoo-cat-dress-res-swMy final review of this dress is as follows;
Quality 5/5
Value for Money 5/5
Appearance 5/5
Comfort 5/5

Sabrina’s Christmas Wishlist

Sabrina’s Christmas Wishlist

I’m sure many of you have wishlists, and with Christmas coming up I thought that I could indulge in the products that I would love to get this year. These links and images form the accumulation of items that I would like to be reviewing at Christmas and in the new year.

My first items on my wishlist are to have some more of these incredible makeup brushes from Spectrum Collections! I have the pink and would love some of the others, they are fabulous for me to add to reviewing photographs too, so so photograph-able! And they also put my makeup on so well too and are extremely soft! In fact I could do with a brush cleaner and I hear the Spectrum one is also excellent!

spectrumblack spectrumwhiteI love these brushes, and I love to photograph them as well. You can see my previous review on Spectrum by searching in my categories for Spectrum Collections.

The second items on my list are from Dorothy Perkins. There are these boots and this dress gorgeous that I absolutely adore! There are so many nice items, and on trend looks available on the DP website at the moment, definitely worth a look in my opinion.

I really like these boots as well over at BooHoo! How nice is the detail! (Yes I have more Boots than shoes and love them all year around!)

Another item I really like the look of right now is the Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar, how great does this look? I still hope to get some chocolate, but I like these products, and would like to own more, perhaps I will be lucky enough to open this sort of calendar this year… (Purchased By Me – Review Coming Soon)

Something else I discovered after someone shared it on Twitter was this amazing lamp from Very.

I would love this in my home http://www.very.co.uk/eiffel-tower-table-lamp/1600079375.prd

(I purchased this lamp at the end of November, and I love it! Full review coming soon…)

New Look also have some great looking Boots out this season, here are two of the ones that I have got my eye on… both ankle boots…

On my wishlist for reviewing is also this fabulous shelf from over on the Treatbox UK website in the ‘shop’ section, it is so unique looking I just love it! I had to dream what I might place upon it, a pot filled with Spectrum Brushes, a frame and so much more! Do you like it? I love it!

The final items I would love to own and review this Christmas are these pieces from Cherry Diva! I adore anything turquoise or anything with feathers or arrows, that sort of thing…

Another fab idea for people for gifts this Christmas would be anything with a subscription box, I have already reviewed Secret Scent Box, and I currently review Treatbox UK on a monthly basis. I would love to try other boxes in the future, such as Birchbox or Glossybox or perhaps anything else relating to beauty/fashion/perfume/food, some of my favourite things!

Thank you for reading this post today, I wonder if I have inspired any of you for your Christmas lists and gifts for friends or loved ones. Check out the links for the items and brands featured in my post today. I am hoping my wishlist will turn into a reality for some of these items and then I can happily review them for you all to see. Until then keep coming back to the blog for more reveals, reviews and honest opinions on products.

BooHoo Mini Haul

There is nothing in fashion that I love more than new clothes. I don’t pretend to stay on trend all year around, but I do love to invest in items that I don’t already own. I also love to buy new things for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and christenings among them. If something is on trend and I think the style will suit me I will purchase it.

When I had the opportunity to buy some clothes from the wonderful BooHoo I took it all in my stride! I was ordering in advance of wearing some of the items but confident in them still being fashionable in several months to come. And if not then who cares if you look and feel great in them. The one thing I think clothes should do is make you feel confident in yourself, right?!

So what did I buy I hear you ask… Well… I bought a beautiful maxi dress for my summer shenanigans and a lovely long cardigan for cooler summer evenings.

I have always been happy with everything that I have purchased so far from BooHoo.com. I find their clothes fit true to size and the quality is fantastic for the prices. I have made many purchases in the past two years from this wonderful company, they mostly include dresses because the quality and choice is excellent. However this time I treated myself to something a bit different.

In this post today I’m going to review the items I have purchased recently, with photographs of me wearing them included in this review.

So first up is the stunning ‘Rachel Tie Back Border Print Maxi Dress’ with a beautiful butterfly and floral pattern. This stunning piece is lightweight which is ideal for summer and comes with enough detail to make you feel like you need very little accessories. I would pair this with wedge shoes or strapped sandals with one of my arms filled with bangles.
The only thing that is a little annoying about the material used for this maxi dress is that it creases easily. It can be cool ironed only, and even when I did that some creases wouldn’t come out completely. I recommend hanging it up at all times while it’s not in use, and to cool iron soon after every wear and wash to ensure no lasting lines. This is the only downside to the dress, because the detail is wonderful and the shape is very flattering, even to someone slim like myself. There is so much to see on this piece, you find your eyes wandering over the entire piece and you aren’t focusing on one area.

The second piece of clothing I’m reviewing is this stunning Wine coloured ‘Rosie Longline Jersey Basic Cardigan’ paired with a boohoo crop top. I always like to throw on cardigans when my arms get cold. There is something very comforting about long sleeved clothing, and when the fabric is as long as this is, it’s not only warming but it’s also fashionable! So I paired this piece with a crop top and some skinny jeans. When the warmer months appear it will be worn with shorts and crop tops. Such a versatile item of clothing I look forward to seeing all the outfits that I can pair it with. I also chose this colour because I love deep shades; they go well with both light and dark outfits.
This cardigan will need ironing frequently and when being washed it would need to hang to dry to avoid getting misshapen. Other than that I cannot fault it’s soft material and almost perfect length of arms and body.

For anyone who is interested in purchasing these pieces of clothing they are all still available on the BooHoo website.

My Review of the items from BooHoo are;
5/5 Quality
5/5 Value
5/5 Appearance and Style
5/5 Comfort
4/5 Durability

If anyone is wondering about my details I am a size 8 and of height 5 ft 3.5 “. So if you are taller than me these items will appear differently on your figure. Always take into consideration your height when ordering dresses. For example I cannot wear the beautiful maxi dress without a 2” or more heel, something to consider when buying if you don’t like wearing high heeled shoes.

I hope you have enjoyed this review post and if I get anything more from BooHoo in the future you can be sure I will blog about it. 🙂

BooHoo Feather Lace Overlay Skater Dress Review

boohoofeatherdressWhen it came to picking an outfit for the 2015 Christmas festivities I was underwhelmed by what I had in my wardrobe. I just wanted some new and of good quality material so I wouldn’t have to layer up if it was cold.

I searched through the internet in my lunch break at work and came across this dress from BooHoo. Even though I wasn’t looking to wear black, it had stunning detail on the piece of material from the waist up. The model looked great in their pictures and I just thought, that looks like the dress for me. I like skater dresses because of my figure, and hoped it would be as flattering on me as it was her.

BooHooFeatherDressDetailSWWhen the dress arrived I was so pleased with the quality of the fabric. Not only that but the feathers were so intricately sown on it looked far more expensive than its price tag. As you can see from my photograph, this dress has a lot of pretty sewn on white feathers, which almost look three dimensional from a distance. The dress itself was a thick material, especially the skirt part which started from the waist underneath where the mesh/lace with the feathers ended.

FeatherDress
The dress was both comfortable to wear and warm as well. I paired it with knee high boots and a black shrug and I was more than content in this outfit. I received lots of nice compliments about it and felt I had made the right style decision for my figure.

After I had worn the dress I obviously washed it and thankfully I lost none of the detail. (Make sure you always wash items like this inside out to stop any detail snagging). I would happily wear this dress again at any time of the year.

Overall I am ecstatic with my purchase from BooHoo and I can recommend their dresses, this is not the first one I have purchased.
My final review for this piece of clothing is:
5/5 for comfort
5/5 for durability and quality
5/5 for style and appearance
5/5 for value

This dress is still available from www.boohoo.com but only in limited sizes. I am adding the link for you here if you’re interested in looking at it further.
